Default Jeopardy! [Bangladesh History]

It's about time we know our own history. It's shame all of us know more about US history than our own motherland. So I am about to make learning about your own root unboring.

You know the rules. I provide you the answer, you provide the question. To make it more interesting, you can put the dollar amount to keep score of the members. Here is the first 'question':

Quote:
For $400, this martyr was awarded the highest gallantry award Bir Sreshtho for gunning down 2 'launch' and 1 speedboat and annihilating almost 2 platoon of enemy stronghold.
*awaits for Dr. Z to get it right* Lol

Wow! That was fast. Yup, that's correct. Being a Munshi myself I intentionally chose this! Read more here.

Shardul vai gets 400 points and gets to ask the next 'question.' :-)

This man documents his entire life on the internet. A pocket GPS is always broadcasting his location. He will post almost every copy of his debit card transactions. His entire life is an open book.

I don't know how it became 'Rouf'. In our Bangla book, it was "Abdur Rob".

Here is my question: $300

Who declared the independence of Bangladesh?

Hint: The answer depends who is the ruling party in BD

I know where you are coming from too, but let me tell you my history:

I being a good reciter of the Quran often used to be called in most of my high school programs to do the "Quran telawat part". in in our high school, from 1996-2001 we observed the National Mourning Day and National Children's Day (The birth day of the Sk. Mujeeb).Then from 2001- until I graduated, we observed National Revolution and Solidarity day and National Teachers Day (I guess it is on Zia's birthday).

The school was supposed to maintain non-political atmosphere, but we knew very well which 'Sir and Madames" were BAL and who were BNP. শোক দিবসে যখন আমজাদ আর মোতাহের স্যার শেখ মুজিবের স্তবগাথায় মাইকের বেহাল দশা করতেন, বিএনপি স্যারেরা তখন মুখ কালো করে বসে থাকতেন। তবে তাদের এই মুখ কালো বেশি দিন দেখতে হয়নি। এক মাঘে ত শীত যায় না। তাদের ৩২ দন্ত নিরাভরণ হাসি দেখেছি ২০০১ এর পর। কারন ১৫ আগস্ট ওনাদের নেত্রী খালেদা জিয়ার নাকি জন্মদিন।

১৯৯৮ সালে আমি যখন ক্লাস ফাইভে পড়ি, তখন আমাদের সমাজ পড়াতেন শাহে আলম স্যার। বৃত্তি পরীক্ষার জন্য স্যার আমাদের একটা প্রশ্ন পড়তে দিয়েছিলান, "বাংলাদেশের মুক্তিযুধধের একটি সংক্ষিপ্ত বর্ণণা লেখ"। স্যার নিজেই নোট দিয়েছিলেন প্রশ্নটির। স্যার সেখানে ২৫শে মার্চ রাতে বঙ্গবন্ধুর ঘোষণা আর ২৭শে মার্চ মেজর জিয়ার কথা উল্লেখ করেছিলান। স্যারের এই নোট চোখে পড়ে আমাদের ক্লাসের এক ছাত্রের বাবার। তিনি ছিলান আওয়ামী লিগার। জিয়ার নাম উল্লেখ করলেন, এম এ হান্নানের ২৬ শে মার্চের ঘোষণার কথা কেন তিনি উল্লেখ করেননি নোটের মধ্যে, সেটা তিনি এম্বেসেডোর স্যারকে জানালেন। এম্বেসেডোর স্যার ভাল আনুষ ছিলেন, কিন্তু স্কুলের তখনকার কমিটি ছিল লীগার। তারা স্যারকে ডেকে চরম অপমান করলেন। লেকচারার ছিলেন, কিন্তু স্যারকে এরপর আর একাদশ ও দ্বাদশ শ্রেণীর ক্লাস নিতে দেয়া হয়নি। স্যার পরে রিজাইন করে বাংলাদেশে চলে যান কিছুদিন পরে।

ঘটনার শেষ এখানে নয়। ১৯৯৯ সালের আগে আমরা পরতাম শেখ মুজিবের জীবনী। ২০০১ পর ক্লাস এইটের বাংলা বইয়ে মুজিবের সাথে জোগ হয় জিইয়ার জীবনী। সমাজ বই থেকে মুছে যায় বংগবিন্ধুর রেস্কোর্সের ভাষণের ছবি।

ছোট ছিলাম, কিন্তু এই কাদা ছোড়াছুড়ি অনেক দেখেছি। বংবন্ধুর ভুমিকা যেমন কেউ অস্বীকার করতে পারবে না, তেমনি জিয়ার দেশের জন্য মুক্তিযুদ্ধও কেউ আস্বীকার করতে পারবে না। স্বাধীনতার পর দুজনেই অনেক কিছু করেছেন যা প্রশ্নযোগ্য। উনারা এখন প্রয়াত, তাই তাদের ভাল দিকই আমাদের শুধু বলা প্রয়োজন, কারণ উনারা এখন উনাদের কর্মফলের প্রাপ্তিস্থানে পৌঁছে গেছেন।

উদারতার কে দেখিয়েছে? কেউ দেখায়নি। আওয়ামী লীগের কাছে মেজর জিয়া একজন রাজাকার, আর বিএনপি তো মনে হয় জানেই না যে শেখ মুজিব নামে কেউ আমাদের স্বাধীনতা যুদ্ধের পুর্বে নেতৃত্ব দিয়েছিলেন।



Thanks God, I am now at A&M, and there are no more hovering between such ugly politics.

Sorry Zeeshan bhai. Please don't take any offense from my post. I just tried to prove that I do not support any team because I have noticed the mud slinging since my childhood.
